There is nothing better than a grilled cheese sandwich, unless it’s a grilled cheese sandwich stuffed full of cheesy beef.
To say this is a hearty sandwich is putting it mildly. It’s a full meal, for sure. Just add a side salad or a cup of soup, and you’re ready to go. Plus, it cooks up quickly, something I love, especially for a weeknight meal.
To make this even more perfect, Angus ground chuck is on sale this week at Brookshire’s, so feeding your family is delicious, quick, easy and economical!
I’ve also added chopped green bell peppers into the mixture and cooked them at the same time I added the mushrooms, onions and garlic.
Grilled Beefy Cheese
1 lb Angus ground chuck
1 clove garlic
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup white onions, diced
8 slices good-quality sandwich bread
4 tsp butter, softened
8 slices Swiss cheese
8 slices American cheese
Brown ground Angus in a large pan. Drain fat. Add garlic, mushrooms and onions to the pan; cook until vegetables are soft. Drain any excess liquid. Remove from heat and set aside.
Butter 1 side of each slice of bread. Heat a griddle pan to medium-high heat, and place 4 slices of bread, butter-side down, on the griddle. Top with 1 slice each of American and Swiss cheese, and then add 1/4 cup of the beef mixture. Top with remaining slices of bread, butter-side up. When the first side of bread is golden and browning, carefully flip and cook until the second side of bread is golden and browning, and cheese is melting. Serve immediately.
